I found it frustrating that (to my way of thinking) there was almost nothing about who you are and what you are trying to accomplish. Rev. 7:9 can be used in a very welcoming, inclusive way, but it can (and has often) been used very exclusively, as meaning “all people, as long as you join us in believing as we do.” It’s fine to have member only material, and it’s wonderful that you share resources freely, but you need to give more “about us” type information on your home page or in a visible and easily accessible place.

Hi Laurel, Thanks for the good feedback! I will have someone look into what happened to our “about us” page, we did have one. Rev 7:9 and Acts 17:26 are verses we are using as promotion of our 2022 “Heaven On Earth” event. CRC is partnering with local churches focusing on Christ as the center of worship and prayer that day. (Aug 27th, 2022) Connection Revival center has a very basic statement of faith because our purpose is to “connect with God, with churches, and with communtiy” to see an awakening of faith in Christ spread throughout our world bringing healing and restoration. If you have specific questions about faith in Christ we would love for you to open a dialogue using our social media page “the Standard”.

I have been thinking about Genesis and the verse there that influences so much of Christian culture. The verse is Genesis 1:38. This verse mentions that God says to mankind, “Be fruitful and multiply” and in my life among Christian Americans I have heard this verse often quoted and referred to as a reason I should be having a large family. I have one son because I really am looking at the global issues of population growth and, though, I would have selfishly loved to have a huge family, I ethically want the world to stay wild and there to be less people in our population in the future in a peaceful way of population reduction. The only way I can see that sort of reduction in population is people taking the initiative and having a culture shift to encourage smaller family sizes. When I try and have that sort of conversation with evangelical Christians in my community people are often very offended and refer to Genesis 1:38. I looked for other references of that sentiment in a topic search through the Bible but don’t see evidence of further encouraging of population growth and large families beyond that one verse. I wonder why that verse is so clung to in our culture. I am surprised that it is the verse in the first chapters of the Bible that is so influential. There are other verses say verse 2:25 about being naked and unashamed that are very taboo in our culture. Why does 1:38 mean so much but 2:25 have no meaning in our society. I also wonder why or how we change which verses are influential in our culture. Anyway, wanting to have an honest dialogue with no judgement or hate. Thanks!

Hi Matt

I have been reading your posts often on my phone, and have gotten a lot out of them all. But typing on my phone to try to read and respond is challenging. I never set up my own log in account on our family laptop until today. Sue helped me, and now I see that the laptop makes it much easier to read and respond.

Hopefully I will get comfortable using the laptop for more correspondence.
I rebuke the thought “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks”. Old dogs have a lifetime of accumulating good tricks and bad tricks. Here’s trusting I can tell the difference, and make the technology leap to new, good choices.
Great website!

I have enjoyed praying with you on Thursdays. I will be cooking at Shiloh Bible Camp this week and will not pray with you this Thursday in person, only in spirit. Love and grace Margaret
